Punica granatum

Common Name: Pomegranate

Origin: Asia

Height: Up to 20’

Light: Partial to full sun

Water: Keep soil moist

Bloom: Red; April, May, and June

Comments: Pomegranates have beautiful orange-red trumpet shaped flowers with ruffled petals. The fruit is technically a berry. It is filled with crunchy seeds, each of which is encased in a juicy, somewhat acidic pulp that is itself enclosed in a membranous skin. The juice has more than twice the amount of antioxidants found in grape juice.
